How does momentum and swimming relate?

momentum and swimming are related because you need momentum to keep you going


Can you have momentum in swimming?

Yes you can, but you're not required to. The choice is yours. There's no momentum if you're just hanging there,but there is if you're moving. Some people have it, others don't.


Why are you disqualified from swimming for moving on the blocks?

because it may give you unfaif momentum off the blocks


Which has more momentum a 250 kg dolphin swimming at 6 meters per second or a 450 kg manatee swimming at 2 meters per second?

Momentum = mass * velocity. So 250*6 > 450*2 meaning.... The First dolphin!


Which has more momentum a 250 kilogram dolphin swimming at 4 miles per second or a 350 kilogram manatee swimming at 2 meters per second?

I think you mean the dolphin's velocity is 4 metres per second.In which case the dolphin's momentum will be 1000 kg.m/secThe manatee will have less momentum (700 kg.m/sec)Linear momentum = mass times velocity.By the way, 4 miles per second = 14,400 miles per hour.


Compare the momentum of a 6 300-kg elephants walking 0.11 ms and a 50-kg dolphin swimming 10.4 ms.?

Multiply mass x velocity in both cases.Note: This will actually give you the MAGNITUDE of the momentum. To get the actual momentum, you also need the speed; but for the purpose of this exercise, you can probably assume that both move in the same direction.


How do dolphins jump?

Dolphins jump by swimming really fast. Once they have enough momentum they are able to propel themselves from the water which looks like they are jumping.


How would you compare the momentum of a 50-kg dolphin swimming 10.4 ms and a 6300-kg elephant walking 0.11 ms?

momentum = mass * velocity dolphin: 50kg*10.4m/s = 520 kg (m/s) elephant: 6300 kg * .11 m/s = 693 kg (m/s) The elephant has more momentum because of its large mass, and will be harder to stop/ change its course.


According to the law of conservation of BLANK in an isolated system the initial total momentum before a collision equals the final total momentum.?

Momentum apexxx


What Does it Men To Momentum is Conserved?

When momentum is conserved, the initial momentum is equal to the final momentum.


Impulse and momentum does impulse equal momentum or change in momentum?

Impulse equals change in momentum.


What is the opposite of momentum?

Inertia. Since momentum is directional, the opposite of momentum is an opposed momentum, going in the opposite direction.


What is the product of an object's mass and its velocity?

The product of an object's mass and its velocity is called its momentum. Sometimes it is also called linear momentum, to distinguish it from angular momentum - however, when the word "momentum" is used alone, it usually refers to linear momentum.


What does conversation of momentum mean?

Conservation of momentum means that momentum is a constant and the change of momentum or force is zero.


In a closed system the momentum before a collision the momentum after a collision.?

The total momentum before the collision is the same as the total momentum after the collision. This is known as "conservation of momentum".


In a closed system the momentum before a collision the momentum after a collision?

The total momentum before the collision is the same as the total momentum after the collision. This is known as "conservation of momentum".


Momentum has direction because what has direction?

Momentum is mass x velocity; velocity has a direction, therefore momentum has a direction.Momentum is mass x velocity; velocity has a direction, therefore momentum has a direction.Momentum is mass x velocity; velocity has a direction, therefore momentum has a direction.Momentum is mass x velocity; velocity has a direction, therefore momentum has a direction.


How do you find Final momentum when you have initial momentum and change in momentum?

Use this formula:Final momentum = (initial momentum) + (change in momentum)


What is it called when momentum can be transferred but the total momentum does not change?

conservation of momentum


An example of momentum?

Momentum is motion. When a car is moving it is exhibiting momentum. A young professional getting promotions is experiencing momentum.


What are the biomechanical principles applied in swimming?

angle of projection, height of projection, speed of release, following through w/each stroke, acceleration, newtons 2nd law, inertia, momentum, summation of forces, leverage.


If an object is thrown does it gain momentum or lose momentum?

It depends at what time in the throw your talking about. In the beginning it gains momentum, then in the middle it starts to lose momentum then in the end it loses all momentum.


How do you use momentum in a sentence?

Momentum is given the symbol p Momentum is given the symbol p Momentum is given the symbol p


How do you conserve momentum?

According to the law of conservation of momentum which states that in a closed system momentum before collision is equal to the momentum after collision.


Is mass inversely proportional to momentum?

Mass is proportional to momentum. Momentum is the product of mass and velocity. When mass increases, momentum increases.
